I also pay top dollar for high quality fishing reels!. There are photos and information on many manufacturers listed in each section. Since the early 1980's, Ed Pritchard has been researching and collecting high-quality antique fishing reels, rods and lures with an emphasis on big game reels by such makers as Kovalovsky, Coxe, Hardy, vom Hofe, and Fin-Nor and fly fishing reels by Leonard, Vom Hofe, and Hardy just to name a few.

read more › In a discussion about antique big game fishing reels, the first question that we have to answer is what separates a big game reel from a regular saltwater trolling reel, the answer is size. The second question would then be, what is the cut off on the small end of the size scale for big game reels? A 10/0 size reel would be considered the smallest size big game fishing reel. 10/0 size reels are approximately 5-1/2 inches in diameter (measuring the length across the side-plate) by about 3-1/2 inches across the inside of the spool (the length of one of the reel's pillars).
